I have applied to the Business Licensing Authority for a Secondhand dealer and Pawnbrokers License. I intend to Pawn used cars. The Act states that Section 23(1a) (a pawnbroker must not receive a motor car as goods in pawn) I imagine this is because they are not Licensed Motor Car Traders. I am a licensed motor car trader. Then in the same act(second hand dealers and pawnbrokers act) section 4(f) it states Nothing in this act applies to- A licensed motor car trader. So from this I imagine I would have no problem. I applied to the Business Licensing Authority (BLA) for a Pawnbrokers license stating that I was going to pawn motor cars as I am a Licensed Motor Car trader. BLA are telling me that I cannot pawn motor cars as it states in the Act, I have politely continued to send them sections of the Act that clearly state that nothing in the Act applies to a licensed Motor Car trader, and they are still saying I cannot do it. Any opinions or idea's on what I can do under commercial law from here would be much appreciated.
